I am just a simple guy from Wisconsin, however I have had the opportunity to travel the world and gain insight into many different cultures, and gain lots of interesting life experiences.
As a young man in grade school, I begrudgingly completed my English assignments-until I came across the works of Edgar Alan Poe. I was mesmerized! His poetry seemed to be speaking all of my mind. Poe is, I suppose you could say, my idol within the realm of writing. I am pleased to see that his works are given their due place of prominence on this site. You may notice that many of my poems are dark and melancholy in nature as well; not because I am trying to copycat Poe, but because they are coming from a similar type of mindset. (I am not a drug addict though-well at least not yet) I genuinely hope my writings can be enjoyed by those who read them here.
In pain you came screaming into this world,
From the day your eyes opened the darts were hurled.
Live long enough, you may see through those eyes
That mother who bore you suffer and die.
A verbal offense at a critical hour
Tears down fences and hits like a hammer
Smashes like a steam roller
Don't let em tell you words don't have power
Filled by a tsunami, then shattered in an earthquake,
for what it's worth, this is my take.
The glass not half full or empty-this glass is gone,
Whatever was left got blown away by some terrorist's bomb.
Do you ever wish that you could circle back,
And get it right,
And put the train back on the track?
Undo the terminal decisions,
So this is war, not what I expected, we try to build it back up cause someone wrecked it
Erect it, a new society, not sure what that's got to do with me
I don’t even know your names, but I see your faces, people
Living in these places, spaces cut off from reason, Season after season
